1 vintage U.S. World War 2 Richtig fighting knife w/Cornish sheath.  This is the Richtig/Cornish combination every collector is looking for.  This desirable Richtig fighting knife would make an important addition to any U.S. military or world militaria collection.

This knife was made by a legend in knife-making.  Frank Richtig had a secret steel tempering process that allowed him to slice through railroad spikes and automobile leaf springs.  Frank would demonstrate this at county fairs--after slicing a railroad spike or leaf spring, he would slice through a piece of paper with the same knife.  Frank earned himself a spot in a 'Ripley's Believe It or Not' magazine in the 1930's.  These knives can be used for decades, because of Frank's superior craftsmanship.

This knife measures 11" overall.  The blade itself measures 5 15/16 ".  This Richtig fighter is marked on the pommel 'F.J.R.  CLARKSON  NEB.'.  The guard and pommel are brass.  The pommel has an extended lanyard ring.

The sheath is stamped 'ALFRED CORNISH   OMAHA, NEB.'.  Lower down on the scabbard throat it is stamped with the number '2'.


This fine Richtig example has a blood groove in the blade--an uncommon, and desirable feature in a WW2 Richtig fighter.

This U.S. WW2 Rightig fighting knife is in excellent condition.  The Cornish sheath is quite perfect.  The knife is exceptional.  Everything on this Richtig fighting knife is nice and tight.

This U.S. WW2 Richtig fighting knife w/Alfred Cornish sheath deserves a home in a premium collection.
